This was a piece in Raven's personal collection for over 20 years.
Franklinite is a combination of Franklinite (Black octahedral crystals), Willemite (Red/Orange fibrous crytals, Fluorescing Bright Green), and Calcite (White crystaline, Fluorescing Orange). We photographed this in both white light and short wave black light.
